This experimental and participatory event explored the boundaries of the body at the end of life (touch, embodiment, gestures and more) through roving conversations about end of life scenarios with a focus on death and dying, ageing and illness and how they intersect with culture, the senses and place.
Presented by Rebecca Hilton (Uni. Arts Stockholm), Keely Macarow (School of Art), Gretchen Coombs (School of Media & Comm.), Kit Wise, (School of Art), Soumitri Varadarajan (School of Design) and Fleur Summers (School of Art).
